Our 10 Year anniversary cruise....


The pier in San Juan Sunday night

What we woke up to outside our window on Monday morning!  
Welcome to St. Thomas!

These beauties were getting ready to go out.  Pretty sure Bart wants one of these one day...

Good bye St. Thomas.  See you again soon!




Our second port was Dominica.  We just got off and wandered around the streets.  So lush and green....


On Wednesday we were in Barbados.  We went to the rum factory Four Squares.  It used to be a sugar plantation when sugar was the industry of the island...




Then we went to a plantation house....

They even had good shoes back in the day!



Mom those ones were for you!  :)

Then we went to Billy's craft world.  He crafts in mahogany.  That is him in the background.

Zip lines in St. Lucia!  Can you see me freaking out? 
zip lines+Scared of heights Erin=freaking out!



I survived... and I loved it!  Can't wait to go again!

All you movie buffs..... what movie is this scene from?  I know... but do you?


Good bye St Lucia.  We really enjoyed seeing all of your amazing plants and fruits!  And your tree tops!




In Antique we wandered again.  But not until after we had a couples massage in the spa!  Oh my... perfection!  So relaxing and any of you that know me well know I am not normally a relaxed person... there is always something on the go, so this was great! 

Can you see what we saw in this picture from St. Kitts?  (hint:  look for wildlife)


These were in the trees at one of the plantation houses.  They are monarch butterflies.  They were exquisite!






This is an abandoned sugar factory.  This tour we took was incredable!




This is in the oldest church on the island of St. Kitts.  There was a sweet reverence in this building.  It may have had something to do with my emotions being so close to the surface right now, but it was a wonderful way to end our tour and bring our cruise to a close.  As we stood outside this building looking into the cematary my emotions getting the better of me, I thought back on the last 10 years that got us here and it made me really look forward to the next 10!
